Speaking on Sportsday, Mr Lethlean said there is plenty to do.

‘I think there’s certainly some challenges for us, to ensure that kids choose to play our sport at a young age.’

‘On the field, we want this game to be fast and high scoring and still to be the best spectacle in Australian sport.’

Lethlean wouldn’t be drawn on a possible grand final start time.

‘I don’t think there’s any hurry to make a decision on that if the commission are actually looking to make one.’
